A Surprise Road Trip


Saturday morning we packed the kids in the car for a surprise road trip.  I wanted to do a couple of these of the summer but it just did not work out as planned.  However, Saturday, the boys did not have a clue where we were taking them until we were on the road.  So where did we go?  Louisville, Kentucky.  It's about an hour and a half away from us and knew it would be the perfect surprise.  First we went to the Louisville Slugger Museum.


We visited this museum two years ago, but the kids did not seem to remember.  We toured the factory first but they did not allow pictures on the tour.


After, the boys looked at the bats and Holden found one of his favorite players bat...


Bryce Harper!  He was thrilled.  All three of our future ball players sat in the dugout and held bats.


The lego area was a huge hit too.


Yes, those are legos!  A few hits in the batting cages and then we head over to Slugger Field for the second part of our surprise...a baseball game.


Kevin got really close seats but it was just too hot for Leyton so we sat under the over hang until the sun went down.  While Kevin and the boys watched the game they snacked and snacked and snacked!  HA!  Always a party!  The Bats ended up not winning but we all had a great time.

We did not even get 10 minutes on the road when all three were sound asleep.  I would say our surprise road trip was a big hit.
